It’s a great idea, … and a great book. This past week, I received a book from a successful author and, you know, the book, “Stones in the Path,” though fictional, does indeed teach lessons! The genesis of the novel was someone looking at a 200-page book (e.g., “Skills, Knowledge, Character” or SKC) and either being overwhelmed by the volume or not having a vision for mentoring.


Jason, the main character, because of his very proper Christian upbringing, could look like an ideal candidate. But what is under the surface shows that substance is lacking. Through this unique approach, the author hopes that the book will help people see some of the critical character issues that are not readily seen as part of “missionary prep” kinds of activities.


Priced retail at $13.99, the author is making it available to Brigada readers for $12, shipping included. You can also get “Stones” plus SKC for $25, shipping included.
